This is my first time here. I want to be and stay sober. Am I in the right forum? This is confusing to me.
Hi yes you are in the right forum if your a "newcomer to recovery" Welcome to SR, all you need is the want to stop to be here.
I have been in recovery before. About 20 years ago. But I have lost it and can't seem to get it back.
Well, be welcome here. There's a lot of support and good people to help. I've been here only a couple of weeks and it's great.:welcome
The fact that you want your sobriety back, that's a great start!
hi wanttohave fun - you're in the right place :)
You'll find a lot of support here.
Coming back after a relapse can be tough...what method did you use for the 20 years?
I went to some meetings at first and learned to turn to the higher power. I prayed everyday and changed friends and did all the things or most anyway that were recommended. it began to change after a life threatening illness. the doctor gave me valium- pretty much an unlimited supply. it took a while but that was the path back to full blown drinking and using prescriptions. i shouldn't have listened to that doctor. i want my health back and i know i won't have it unless i stop completely. my family says i need to use just a little more willpower. they don't understand.
Welcome to SR, Wanttohavefun.
There's a lot of support here--for all, but especially those of us who don't have support in our regular lives. Some things another addict/alcoholic can understand better than those in our lives around us...
Best of luck.
Hi and Welcome,
I'm glad you're here and seeking support.
You can find your way back to sobriety.
Keep coming back, you'll find a lot of support here.
